    So are you suppose to be able to do logs in your head on the gen chem portion? Seems a bit ridiculous to me
    Also is there a calc allowed on QR test? I saw on the ADA practice exam it said an electronic calc. is provided for this section?

    Yes you should do logs in your head, and yes calc is provided for QR. I've been reading that the calc is the windows calc and you cant type the numbers. Rather, you have to click each number... so it can be a little time consuming.:confused:

    What helped me with doing logs in my head was watching chad's gen chem pH videos. He goes over it in a very easy to understand manner and the quizzes reinforce the video very well.

    No calculator on the science section which is a blessing meaning that all the calculations are very simple and straightforward. If there were a calculator here as you desire, we would have to perform crazy calculations with crazy numbers.

    Doing logs in your head are pretty easy too. Logs are in base 10 so just put the number into scientific notation and you'll be set.
